    I cut the elestic strap over the instep, so glad I did. Now the instep pressure is gone. The only function of that strap was to hold the tongue behind the shell when putting on the boot, no issue...

    Thanks for the reply. It is slowly breaking in. It's just frustrating since the right one is perfect. Been a very long time since I had to break in new boots.

    They are old. In perfect condition. I sanded it down yesterday, (actually only the left boot was having an issue ) I think normal pack out will take care of the rest.

    My skis are 74 underfoot. Perfect for hard packed fast groomers. They sink like hot knives in butter in soft spring snow, not the right tool. How wide would I need to go to get some float in mushy...
